New Comics Day 8/30

So, today the comics I’m coming home with are a bunch of really great issues of really amazing things I’m not going to read any time soon. All three of the books are on their second story arc, and I plan on doing their “second season” Netflix style. (Sorry in advance for the lack of review, imagination and storytelling.)

New Comics 0830

Rebels: These Free & Independent States #6

First up is Rebels, and I’m pretty sure this story is supposed to finish up in about two issues. The first arc was amazing, I’ve referred to it as “fake history” in the sense that it reads like fictional stories involving factual characters. I remember getting super into the first issues, and I’ve just been hooked from the beginning. Even though it’s a little more wordy than comics I typically read, I am really excited to get into this arc in another month or so.

Lady Killer 2 #5

Joëlle Jones did an amazing job with the first five part series, the artwork and story are all amazing. We even have a couple prints that we picked up at Boston Comic Con a couple years back that she did as promotional ads for the story. It’s got a retro vibe, a hitwoman/murder vibe, and a fun plot that sort of reminds me of Mad Men at times.

Black Magick #7

I heard a rumor that this series got picked up as a television show, then it sort of disappeared. So, I was happy with the first five issues… but, then when I saw that it was coming back, I literally bought it. The series, in case anyone hasn’t read it, is about a police officer who is a practicing witch with a lot of powers… if I remember correctly, there’s (spoiler alert) a murder in the witch community, and the killer is trying to out our heroine. How will this next chapter play out?

Sorry for such a poor introductory volume of New Comics Day, hopefully next time I’ll get a little time to actually read one… that’s doubtful though. It may take me until winter when I go on my comics bender.

Goin Out West (Long Island)

So, I recently got back from a weekend trip to Long Island, and came back with a couple new ideas… both as ridiculous as random.

  1. Start making my own ketchup (catsup… cat-syrup?) …which I found a bunch of recipes online, and I’m sick of ketchup tasting like it does. So maybe it won’t be ketchup at all. Either way, I just want to create a recipe to put up on the site, and then have a label that people can download and print to put on the jar. I started drawing label ideas, but I haven’t scanned anything yet.
  2. Re-record a new version of “I Like Fucking” (the B.C.Ragtime song, not the Bikini Kill one), only as a punk rock song instead of whatever we did with it the first time. So, with that idea… I sketched out this idea for a cover (which looks like this.)

…and now for a little Goin’ Out West. This is going to be a weekly online comic that my friend Matt (from work, not Turdman) and I are putting together. The idea comes from this sitcom idea we came up with, which I’ll explain later once we get a special Tumblr page or something set up for it. So, here’s the first one:

You can click on it to make it bigger… but hopefully this will actually work out for a while because it’s not just me starting some random idea. I’ll have more people to motivate me into making it. Who knows… maybe it’ll end up in the weekly paper or something after we get a little better at it. Anyway, that’s all for now… join us next time for EXTREME LOGONESS!
